The Fine Art + Design Selections auction, presented by Hindman, offers contemporary and early 20th-century pieces from artists around the world. Representing the United States is Ida Kohlmeyer’s Mythic Mirror. Kohlmeyer discovered Abstract Expressionism when a leader of the movement, Mark Rothko, came to her native New Orleans as a visiting artist. In this piece, Kohlmeyer applied mixed media shapes onto a wooden mirror. The work comes to auction from Chicago’s Hokin Kaufman Gallery.
From France, bidders will find a pair of andirons by André Arbus. Andirons, also known as fire-dogs, are supports used to elevate logs in an open fireplace to allow air circulation. Rounding out the featured lots is a digital print of nude models by Italian performance artist Vanessa Beecroft. She is known for arranging her models in various stages of nudity to form a militaristic effect. Beecroft has collaborated with numerous other artists and performers, including Kanye West. View each of the mentioned lots and register to bid on the Hindman website.
